I was there yesterday and I thought it was significant stepforward.  Look
the reality is was it is...
regional antiwar marches get 1000 people and the Black is Back march and
rally had between
200 and 300 people.  For the first time I was able to really meet, build and
politik with a significant
number of black radicals and socialists that I have never met.  There were
also young students who
for them this was a new experiance and were able to step off the sidelines
of history and start making it.

I also thought the speakers were fantastic from Nellie Bailey and Larry Hamm
to Pam Africa all made
great points that highlighted the need for a continued resistance to the
Obama administration.  I think there
was a serious effort to organize this march and I would like to say that
the African Peoples Socialist Party
comrades did an excellent job organizing for this event.  I will definitely
look forward to working with all the
serious brothers and sisters who made this rally and march possible.

Uhuru!
